Photography silhouette- click chicks

Switching gears to photography today. Our challenge this week for click chicks was silhouettes.

I have to be honest as I always am, I had to google photography silhouettes. I wasn't totally sure what I was trying to achieve with this picture or how I was going to go about doing it. So I'll fill ya in. Basically you want to have a dark image infront of a light source. So if you want a silhouette of a person's profile you need them to stand in front of a light, a window, or the sun.

Tuesday after dinner I grabbed the hubby, the kiddo, and my camera and headed to the front yard hoping to get a silhouette of the kiddo's profile but thinking I could at least get a silhouette of the hubby. Neither were cooperating and the sun was setting behind the houses and trees so I took this picture of the palm tree in front of our house.

I love it! I didn't edit it at all. Didn't even crop.

Next week your challenge is to capture happiness.

What do we have to do to get people to link up with us? Maybe a head shaving contest. If we have three people link up I'll shave my head. Six and I'll shave Rachael's head ;)


  1. This is a really cool picture. I've basically had to look them up every week I've seen a new word! Ha!

  2. Gorgeous pic, I couldn't get B to model for me either :)

  3. I'm so jealous you have your very own palm tree. That's a dream come true where I'm from ;-)

  4. That is a gorgeous photo! :)

  5. you're right, we did basically the same pic at the same time! hahaa not only did I google how to do a silhouette, but then I googled the best time to take it! Thanks sacramento!
